Storyline

Hans, a self-confident man, on his way together with his family, causes a traffic fight with another driver: Ed - who, in revenge, starts to follow the family and confronts Hans with his ego. As Hans starts to lose control of his family, Ed pushes him until nothing but the fearful, vulnerable child he once was remains.

User Reviews

 
Great mixture of genres without the clichées
28 November 2019 | by annaverhoeven-13408See all my reviews

Put Cape Fear, No Country For Old Men, The Hitcher, Duel, Wild Tales and Joy Ride together and stirr it with lots of Black Humor and Bumperkleef is what you end up with. A rollercoaster from the beginning to the end with kids and parents screaming both in the actionscenes as in the audience.

Cool soundtrack. And De Wolf is the best villain Dutch cinema has ever witnessed.
